    A former intelligence analyst, Stella Morabito, who grew up in a left-wing family and calls herself a “realist,” is speaking out about mass manipulation, political correctness and the transgender agenda. Her writings at The Federalist got the attention of Rush Limbaugh back in June when he seemed fascinated by her piece on mass delusion. A subsequent related piece is here. In this exclusive video interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, she details how the left uses mass manipulation techniques to confuse Americans and grab power. She condemns conservatives for not even realizing the behavior modification techniques being employed in...
  • Western University’s ‘Language Awareness Campaign’ takes political correctness to the Nth degree

    Just when you think the speech police can’t get any nuttier, along comes Western University (London) and its “Language Awareness Campaign.” “The point of the campaign,” as National Review’s Katherine Timpf reports, is “to warn against using language with an ‘inherently violent nature.’” But as the campaign’s Facebook page demonstrates, you may be scratching your noggin at some of the examples. For instance, one should not say “I was ‘blind’ to something” because, natch, it “ignores the experiences of differently abled individuals”: it continues...

    ‘We demand that Mudd Goes Madd is no longer used’ A decision by Pomona College’s student government not to fund a party called “Mudd Goes Madd” because it’s name and theme allegedly insult and hurt those with mental health struggles was recently mocked nationally. Pomona is part of Claremont Colleges, a consortium of five private undergraduate liberal arts colleges. The “Mudd Goes Madd” party was hosted by Harvey Mudd College, a science-based school in the consortium, and the theme was a play on a bunch of mad scientists from Mudd, or “Madd” scientists.

    Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump has a new book coming out: "Crippled America." The Republican presidential candidate discussed how he named the book at a Wednesday campaign rally in Iowa. "I was going to say the 'Make America Great Again Book.' Eh, it's too nice, because our country's in trouble," Trump recalled thinking. "Then I was going to say 'Greatness in America.' Then I said, 'It's too nice.'" But then the business mogul said an angry photo of himself inspired a harsher title. "Then I had a photographer come up.

The action was driven by a resolution from the Student Government Assembly that SRJC President Frank Chong signed. The day is to be marked with a Monday ceremony. The resolution — which touches on sensitive territory for those who find critical re-examinations of Christopher Columbus’ historical role objectionable — is introduced by a paragraph that reads: The student assembly “recognizes the importance of our indigenous roots.

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 6 (UPI) — The U.S. Marine Corps has unveiled new physical standards that all recruits — male and female — must meet to qualify for 29 of the branch’s jobs. The new gender-neutral standards could make it a lot harder for boot camp recruits and Officer Candidates to obtrain certain positions, according to the Marine Corps Times. These fields include infantry, combat engineering, tanks and amphibious assault vehicles, close-air support, and ground ordnance. One of the standards all recruits must meet is being able to evacuate a casualty, and conduct an MK19 grenade launcher lift. Most posts in...

    War is nasty, brutal and costly. In our latest wars, many of the casualties suffered by American troops are a direct result of their having to obey rules of engagement created by politicians who have never set foot on — or even seen — a battlefield. Today's battlefield commanders must be alert to the media and do-gooders who are all too ready to demonize troops involved in a battle that produces noncombatant deaths, so-called collateral damage. According to a Western Journalism article by Leigh H Bravo, "Insanity: The Rules of Engagement" (, our troops fighting in Afghanistan cannot do night...

    The John William Pope Center’s Jay Schalin recently published a report detailing the decline of America’s college English departments. More and more, traditional English literature classes and other similar icons of the English language in academia are disappearing. Many of them are replaced, or supplemented by, “digital humanities,” “media studies” and the like. Schalin used the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as an example, where requirements have vastly changed between 1988 and 2014. Four specific literature courses were mandatory prior to graduation, ranging from studying T.S. Eliot to Chaucer to William Shakespeare in the 1988-89 school year. But,...

She was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair and received an ESPY award for courage. But even as Jenner starred in a reality TV docu-series about her transition, a deeper question remained. If Jenner weren’t already a rich celebrity, would she have received the same support? How would other, less famous transgender Americans be treated? On Monday morning, a small town in Missouri provided an answer. For two hours, approximately 150 students stood in front of Hillsboro...

According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.” The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for...

    1. “Baa, Baa Black Sheep” is racist. The nursery rhyme, which dates back to the Middle Ages, is under attack. Some schools and family centers in Scotland, England, and Australia have eliminated the word “black” as racist, and now refer to “rainbow sheep,” “happy sheep,” or “green sheep,” though these new adjectives make no sense at all. Stuart Chamberlain of the Oxford Sure Start Center in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, said, “Basically we have taken the equal-opportunity approach to everything we do.” A local dissenter, however, called it “Stalinist.” 2.

In late June, Alabama removed four Confederate flags from its Capitol.

    KXLY recently reported that Patrick Rushing, mayor of Airway Heights, Wash., is facing increased pressure to resign after a Facebook comment about the Obama family was criticized by some locals as racist. “Gorilla face Michelle,” he wrote in the now-deleted post, “can’t disagree with that. The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL.” When the backlash that followed reached city hall, five of six council members present at a recent meeting voted to ask Rushing to step down. Airway Heights Police Chief and Acting City Manager Lee Bennett explained why local leaders felt...

    RIVERSIDE — A Riverside restaurant is holding a contest to rename its "squaw" bread after a customer refused to use the name, saying it is offensive. Backstreet Restaurant owner Keith Holloway tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise ( ) that a woman pointed to the dark brown, molasses-sweetened bread on the chalk menu board when ordering a few weeks ago. When asked why she wouldn't say the name, she said it was a slur. Holloway promptly covered the name with a scrap of paper, temporarily renaming it brown bread. He is taking nominations for a new moniker through the end of the...

    The Wimps and Sellouts Want Trump to Shut-Up, but on illegal immigration Trump Speaks for Us Billionaire businessman and Presidential candidate Donald Trump has the courage to talk about one of the most serious problems facing America today: illegal immigration. In doing so, he also boldly attacked an equally serious problem: political correctness. The PC disease has poisoned our language, and makes it impossible to speak in plain English about our challenges as a nation. For all the crap that politicians spew about wanting to help people, you would think that preventing violent criminals from entering the country illegally would...

    The House has voted to ban the display of Confederate flags at historic federal cemeteries in the deep South. The low-profile move came Tuesday evening after a brief debate on a measure funding the National Park Service, which maintains 14 national cemeteries, most of which contain graves of Civil War soldiers. The proposal by Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., added language to block the Park Service from allowing private groups to decorate the graves of Southern soldiers with Confederate flags in states that commemorate Confederate Memorial Day. The cemeteries affected are the Andersonville and Vicksburg cemeteries in Georgia and Mississippi. “The...

    (CNN)—Coca-Cola wants everyone to imagine a world without labels. And as an example, the beverage company is dropping its own. Coke has introduced a new version of its iconic red-and-white can in Middle Eastern countries for Ramadan, the Muslim holiday that ends July 17. The new red cans feature Coke's signature dynamic ribbon but not the words "Coca-Cola" and are intended to promote open-mindedness and tolerance. The backs of the cans bear the message "Labels are for cans, not people."

    As Western Journalism reported last week, pro golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson has vowed to remove the image of the Confederate flag from the classic General Lee car he bought after the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard ceased production. Watson has said he’ll replace the Confederate flag atop the iconic Dodge Charger with an American flag — a move that drew a fair amount of criticism on social media from folks who believe the golfer caved to the PC purge some argue is now in full force. The cable network TV Land has also shown its PC...

    Since Donald Trump announced his candidacy, and pointed out the criminal behavior of illegal aliens such as MS13 gang members, he has been inside a firestorm of media-spun, PC-fueled hatred, directed specifically to tear him down. Today Trump responds with a rather long press release; and in what’s sure to create a stir, The Donald points out the infectious disease issue. Here’s the full statement:

    I finally figured out just exactly why I'm enjoying Donald Trump's Presidential campaign so much, even though I don't particularly think very well of him or his politics. It is best illustrated by a fantastic clip from the Jim Carrey film Liar, Liar. For the uninitiated, the film is about a divorced lawyer with an adorable little boy who he constantly disappoints by not showing up when he promises and other letdowns due to Carrey's penchant for lying. The boy makes a birthday wish that his father would have to tell the truth and it works. Cut now to the...

    “What I’ve got is F*****G Golden,” said jailed Democrat Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. He was referring to his opportunity to appoint an IL senator to Congress after then Senator Barack Obama became President in 2009. Well, pardon my hubris, but what I have is Golden also, in today’s Hades of Politically Correct Journalism. I have a FIFTIES JOURNALISM DEGREE from that same state, Illinois. Therefore, permit me to advise you budding cub reporters and “J Skul” students of some imperatives I was taught way back when Dinosaurs roamed Wright Street into Greg Hall. “Just the Facts, ma’am; Just the Facts,”...
